Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, about 9 minutes. Add asparagus and cook until pasta is tender yet firm to the bite, about 3 minutes more; drain.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir mushrooms, red bell pepper, and garlic until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat and stir in chicken, artichoke hearts, pesto, salt, and red pepper flakes; cook and stir until heated through, about 5 minutes.

  • Mix pasta and asparagus into chicken mixture, adding chicken broth if some moisture is needed. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top.

Cook's Note:

For a slightly nutty flavor, you can broil the asparagus then add to the chicken mixture.

I love all the flavors that went into this pasta! Make sure you buy a good pesto since that is the predominant flavor profile in the pasta. Even better you could make your own! I did use more pesto than the recipe called for because it was a little dry and I wanted a stronger pesto taste. I also only used 12 oz. of pasta instead of 16 oz. since that is the size the bowtie pasta box. Read More

The taste was very good I forgot to put in the pesto but it was still tasty though a bit dry. I don't know if 1/3c of pesto would have made that much difference. I will add some broth tonight when I reheat the leftovers. The cooking time for the asparagus will vary on the diameter of the asparagus. I used the fatter ones so I would suggest adding it earlier as it took at least 5-6min to become tender and not chewy. Read More

Great and tasty recipe! I actually used linguine for the noodles and chicken breasts. I also skipped the pesto and just used basil alone. Read More
